Re: Beauties from Europe 1:500 (PT-TAA)
hijacking this thread now as I am not sure Sergio would post it any longer. Probably not...
As we all know, Sergio is unfortunately ending his customs career. We have been able to admire many nice gems he made possible for us 1:500 collectors and I am fortunate enough to call many of them my own.
It is sad to see that, after Bert and Allan, the last one of the "old customs masters" will leave the scene. But he has this reasons and we have to understand and respect it.
New ones will follow them and we have seen some of their works already. Wishing them good luck and a steady hand for all future projects.
With this post I would like to present you the last model from the batches I received yesterday from him and also on this way would like to say: Thank you, Sergio !
Many nice batches created for me, many being UK or Africa related and really great gems amongst them.
The model received now was actually a straggler, since this jet was planned for being something else by us. Nevertheless, also this one is a beauty. Love it,w as a great airline and it was in times when the sky in France was still coloured with variety of different aircraft and airlines.
